BA Cabin Baggage Allowance - Domestic SA Flights

Can anyone confirm if British Airways flights operated wholly within South Africa allow once piece of cabin baggage plus a handbag or laptop bag?

I'm traveling from JNB - CPT with a piece of cabin baggage that meets BA's size and weight requirements but also have a small backpack that holds my laptop. I've looked at BA's web site and my itinerary online and the information isn't 100% consistent.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

try this mail address cr@comair.co.za for the info you need. I don't think that it will be a problem.

You'll be fine with Comair, they're exactly the same as BA but with a different name. They're even updating their ancient fleet.

Hi,

You will be fine with that it is quick eye opening to see the size and amount of luggage that is allowed on as hand luggage. We flew BA from Durban to PE with a rucksack each and additional bag, no questions were asked and none of our hand luggage was weighed. Enjoy your flight

Youre allowed a lap top besides your hand luggage so your bag pack could be classed as your handbag. I dont think there will be a problem on a local flight.
